I did it again. I’m back at the same location shooting a different band. This time was going to be a worship service and the band and I both thought it might be distracting and inappropriate to photograph during the actual event. I showed up a couple hours early for rehearsal and photographed that.
I’ve heard that shooting concerts can be a challenge beyond the technical issues. Some artists are very particular about who shoots them, where they are positioned, and when in the concert they allow photography (certain outfits, before they get sweaty, etc.). So when I heard that my friends The Arcadian Wild were going to be in Jacksonville, I contacted them about taking pictures and they were happy to accommodate me. Score! Practicing photography while listening to a great band!
